In a post-rapture world, Connor, an enforcer who prevents defections from the struggling populous, discovers a VHS-tape that proves the existence of a portal to paradise. A chance encounter with a captured AWOL citizen inspires him to reconsider his allegiance to the town. Leaving behind his sick brother behind, he chooses to defect from his decaying hometown and its authoritarian regime to chase his visions of the door. Relying on a tracker, he prophetic dreams, and his gut, Connor makes it into the lawless countryside before being captured by his hometown's best hunter, The Superior. However, rather than return him to the town like the other defectors, she has her own plans to get to the door. Connor forges a shaky allegiance with The Superior, agreeing to guide her to the Portal if she'll let him live. Always sleeping with one eye open, they embark on the the road to the door, honoring their partnership as long as the other remains useful.
